This paper describes the MUMIS project, which applies ontology based Information Extraction to improve the results of Information Retrieval in multimedia archives. The domain specific ontology, the multilingual lexicons and the information passed between the different processing modules are all encoded in XML. The innovative aspect is the use of a cross(More)
CλaSH is a functional hardware description language that borrows both its syntax and semantics from the functional programming language Haskell. Polymorphism and higher-order functions provide a level of abstraction and generality that allow a circuit designer to describe circuits in a more natural way than possible with the language elements found(More)
The supply chain management business can benefit greatly from automation, as recent developments with RFID technology shows. The use of Wireless Sensor Network technology promises to bring the next leap in efficiency and quality of service. However, current WSN system software does not yet provide the required functionality, flexibility and safety. This(More)
In this paper, we present an algorithm for run-time allocation of hardware resources to software applications. We define the sub-problem of run-time spatial mapping and demonstrate our concept for streaming applications on heterogeneous MPSoCs. The underlying algorithm and the methods used therein are implemented and their use is demonstrated with an(More)
This paper describes the MUMIS project, which applies on-tology based Information Extraction to improve the results of Information Retrieval in multimedia archives. It makes use of a domain specific ontology, multilingual lexicons and reasoning algorithms to automatically create a semantic annotation of sources. The innovative aspect is the use of a cross(More)
This paper reports work on automated meta-data creation for multimedia content. The approach results in the generation of a conceptual index of the content which may then be searched via semantic categories instead of keywords. The novelty of the work is to exploit multiple sources of information relating to video content (in this case the rich range of(More)
In this paper, a two-step methodology is introduced to analyse the mapping of Cyclostationary Feature Detection (CFD) onto a multi-core processing platform. In the first step, the tasks to be executed by each core are determined in a structured way using techniques known from the design of array processors. In the second step, the implementation of tasks on(More)
The general concern of the Jacopini technique is the question: ``Is it consistent to extend a given lambda calculus with certain equations?'' The technique was introduced by Jacopini in 1975 in his proof that in the untyped lambda calculus 0 is easy, i.e., 0 can be assumed equal to any other (closed) term without violating the consistency of the lambda(More)
